View Full Version : TRI to FI

9th Nov 2009, 22:21
Is there any info in the question: How can a TRI (on A320) can be FI( SEP/MEP)? Is there any special procedure? I can't find any info in LASORS.
If there is no one procedure, it is an issue for an FTO and CAA cooperation to agreement?

You do the FI course...... Thats gives you SEP privileges, you then do the ME Instructor course and that gives you MEP privileges.

He's from Canada!!!!

Is it the JAR system your asking about or the canadian?

In the UK there is no crossover at all between FI and TRI or TRI to FI.

Good point well presented.

You get bugger all then.

The theory course is like the core course but is twice as long.

You used to get credited with the core course if you held a valid FI but with the coming of JAR you get zero cross over credits.

Assuming that you hold a JAA TRI rating, the 'Teaching and Learning' element (25 hrs) can be credited towards the FI rating (see JAR-FCL 1.310(c)). Other than that, bose-x is correct.
